The site pretty much looks like something designed to sell ads to colleges.

Personally, I have a CS degree, have found it quite useful, and generally look for others who have CS (or related) degrees when hiring programmers. I find those without degrees often lack the well-rounded experience I'm looking for and will often struggle with basic concepts (like parsing, optimizing, ...). Of course, I've known some pretty good self-taught programmers.

Ultimately, applicable experience counts more than education, which is pretty much true for any position (except those with rigorous licensing requirements that require degrees, like doctors).

GeneralSo this is pretty neat, and I'm feeling pretty good about it. Pin
